Election Day is October 24, 2022

Between April and August of 2022, municipal enumerations will be conducted by MPAC in order to prepare a preliminary list of electors for the Township. If you have moved since the last election in 2018 or have not confirmed your citizenship through MPAC, you may not be on the list. The Township encourages all voters to participate in MPAC’s 2022 municipal enumeration.

Make sure you're on the Voter's List before Election Day!

Municipal Elections take place every four years in accordance with the Municipal Elections Act. The next regular Municipal Election to elect a Mayor, Councillors, and School Board Trustees will be on October 24, 2022. The current term of Council ends in November of 2022. 
You may vote in the election if you live in the municipality, are the owner or tenant of land, or your spouse is a property owner or tenant here. You must be a Canadian citizen and 18 years old or older on Election Day.

You must provide proof of your identity and where you live. Even if you have your Voter Information Letter, you must still provide identification.

Please bring either:

  • A government-issued photo identification that has your name and address; or
  • One piece of identification (one that includes your name and the other that has your name and address).
Township Council approved the use of Internet and Telephone voting methods for the 2022 Municipal Election. This voting method was previously used in the 2018 Municipal Election. These voting methods replaced the Vote-By-Mail method used during the 2014 Municipal Election. Internet and telephone voting is fast and convenient and will give voters the opportunity to cast their ballots from anywhere using a computer, smart phone, tablet, or touchtone telephone 24 hours a day throughout the ten-day voting period.

Whether an elector is away on personal travel, suffering from an illness, working days or nights, has a disability or difficulty travelling, they may cast their ballot from anywhere with an internet connection or a telephone. Additionally, voters will no longer need to get in their cars and travel to polling locations, reducing greenhouse gas emissions; and no ballots will need to be printed which reduces the amount of paper needed for the election.

Telephone voting is comparable to telephone banking and is like internet voting. However, voters make their selections by touchtone phone. Telephone voting is not compatible with rotary dial phones.

During the voting period, Township staff will be available to help voters by phone or at the Voting Help Centre to check to:

  • See if they are on the voters list; 
  • Add or amend their information on the list; and
  • Use a computer to vote, or to answer any questions about the election or voting process.

The Township will be working with Intelivote Systems Inc. to provide for Internet and Telephone voting.
